Adobe Systems has launched six new apps, termed Adobe Touch Apps, for iPad and Android tablets, reports PTI. These new apps, which include tools for photo editing and web page design, were launched at Los Angeles during the MAX 2011 technology conference.
Adobe is launching these apps as a part of its new initiative – Adobe Creative Cloud – that will serve as a hub for accessing desktop and tablet applications and for other services. The company is also in the process of buying two firms, Nitobi Software and Typekit to help implement the newly launched apps.
Users can use these apps for a variety of tasks including photo editing, sketching, mood boards, mobile app prototyping and presentation of completed work. They can be shared and viewed across devices. One can also transfer them to Adobe’s Creative Suite PC software for additional alteration.
Users of Android tablets would be able to start using these Adobe Touch Apps from November, 2011 onwards; however, the iPad versions of Adobe Touch Apps will be available only by early 2012. Each app will be available at an introductory price of $9.99.
Adobe is also launching ‘Digital Publishing Suite, Single Edition’, for freelancers and small businesses. This iPad publishing platform would enable users to publish single-issue content with the help of an iPad application.
Adobe will announce the pricing for the entire Creative Cloud package in November.
